for staying with us this hour. there was this moment in 2008 on election night that year. i know you were watching our coverage here on msnbc, but on election night in 2008 over on the fox news channel, carl rove in the middle of fox's election night coverage was on tv gaming out john mccain's chances of pulling out a win that night. he said during their election coverage, quote, if senator mccain loses ohio he goes from 286 electoral votes, which the republicans carried in '04, down to 266 and that puts him below the 270 needed to win the white house. so he would not only need to sweep the rest of these states which were won by the republicans in '04, he would also need to pick up something as well. at that exact moment as carl was saying on fox news as part of their coverage that john mccain basically had to win ohio or else, while carl rove was saying that live on fox, fox got word that the state of ohio had not, in fact, been won by john mccain. it was won by barack obama. mr. rove was right that night. that was game over for john mccain. by winning the great state of ohio, barack oba

candidate mitt romney in the election, presidential election polling this past month conservatives decided these polls showing an american electorate that is choosing president obama over mitt romney, these polls made them feel so uncomfortable they decided to develop a new fantasy electorate that they would poll in theory and their fantasy electorate which is not the real electorate would give them a much more comforting list of results in terms of their fake polls. it was the same dynamic at work when they invented conserve-a-pedia. something you read about the world on wikipedia, if it makes you uncomfortable as a conservative, conserve-a-pedia is guaranteed to only contain information that makes you feel okay. if you are discomfited by the idea the human species is a result of millenia of evolution for example conserve-a-pedia has you covered. don't worry. not only has conserve-a-pedia been debunked by the obvious fact that humans and dinosaurs co-existed, but in fact according to conserve-a-pedia dinosaurs are actually still here. dinosaurs have been seen in papua, new guinea, twice s
was elected our sheriff. he was sworn as our sheriff. he is our sheriff. that is the sum of the facts. the only thing that stands between him and his ability to carry out the duties of his office is this body. trust the citizens of san francisco. we elected ross. and if we want him removed, we are not shy. if you put him back in office, we have recourse, and that is to petition for recall, an the citizens of this city have done it before. if they feel it is appropriate, they will do it again. do not substitute your judgment for the will of the people. secondly, i respect all of the opinions here as i've told you many times before. people have relating to domestic violence. but i will ask youey/@v to consr this. if you decide to remove sheriff mirkarimi based on what has happened inñdk this particular case, which of you is safe from similar charges for any who somehow decide that if they can't get to you in some other way, they willuuÑ simply use a shove or a push or a harsh word f$>ór'g these same charges agait you. i predict that if you don't return the sheriffex to his office,
's no prize people are upset. >> this is the most expensive election ever. >> our political system is really going down the tubes. we've got to get money out of politics. >> political activist david donnellly explains the problem. >> with a lot more money in elections you see potential for corruption. the source of a money is a small number of people. this man for example. >> how much is he worth? >> >> $25 billion. >> there's some milk left in that cow. >> there's a lot of milk left. >> we have to milk that man. >> that's what karl rove is doing right now. >> milling him for america. come on. >> not for america -- >> ahhh. >> the point is that some people see crisis where others see opportunity. this is a private stimulus package for the american economy. >> you are suggesting a jobs program through election spending. >> exactly. where is the problem? >> it doesn't benefit america. most americans are singed by it. >> really? what about these americans they are busy making hats and tote bags normally manufactured by anymoreible fingered malaysian children. it's thanks to election spending. w
had already been elected to office. and they also found that this misconduct was centrally related to the duties that the sheriff has, the duty to enforce the law, to administer the jails, to lead his deputies by example, to protect victims of domestic violence. the mayor put in really quite a bit of evidence about all the ways in which the subject matter of the sheriff's duties is -- touches on domestic violence, offender rehabilitation, officer discipline, et cetera, things that are affected throughout all of his performance. now, the sheriff argues that since he was elected to office, it should be left to the people to recall him from office, through the recall procedure. but that's really wrong. the san francisco charter, as you know, is the city's constitution. it contains the most fundamental rules and principles that the people have determined for themselves about how they wish to be governed. and one of the ways that the people would like to be governed is they would like to have a process, and have votes -- this process, whereby officials who may have already -- whom they
, by electeds, by the board, by the mayor and the public. >> supervisor cohen: can you give me an example of which public policy you used to come to this conclusion. >> an example of -- >> supervisor cohen: i'm just trying to follow your thoughts. >> sure. the public policy i was referring to is the need to interpret statutes in a way that they are as clear as possible. now, it's not always possible to create bright lines. and i think my fellow commissioners were right to say it's not always going to be possible to create a bright line and a bright line is not always essential to determining how a statute should be read but i think there is a public policy value to having these provisions interpreted as clearly as possible, and that's the public policy i'm referring to. >> supervisor cohen: is this public policy established? can you think of a bright line that already exists that all of us -- >> a speed limit is a bright line. there are many bright lines in the law. now again not every law is susceptible to a bright line but by and large i think it does benefit the public when the laws ar
to the opposition. he paved the way for elections on thursday, promising that parliament would have greater rights without encroaching on the king's powers. the muslim brotherhood wants to see real change. it has been adopting a more controversial attitude in the wake of successes -- more confrontational attitude in the wake of successes in egypt. >> everyone knows what we want. we wish to see genuine constitutional reforms. and we want a new election law. the current election law is unacceptable. >> the muslim brotherhood says it will boycott the upcoming elections, which could damage the legitimacy of any future parliament. >> back here in germany, there is a year to go until elections, but there's already a taste of campaigning in the air. >> the social democrats picked former finance minister peer steinbruck to challenge the prime minister. then and now, he has gone into this for a spot of bother, and it is all about money. he has been a favorite on the election circuit. h>> but his critics want to know exactly how much and who he has been speaking to. after days of pressure, he is caving in.
religions. it has been fined. -- fine. there are many world religion electives now. they are the exception. they're not many districts have world religion electives. but the core curriculum, where we need more natural inclusion of teaching about religion, is a tougher nut to crack because of time constraints, because of the issues of teachers not being prepared to teach about religion. we have to address the core curriculum, including more about how religions are part of society and the role of religion. wewe have come a long way in 20 years, but i think we've still got a lot of work to do. >> do you want to add to that quickly? >> quickly, i do not think the establishment clause has been the cause of this. i think there is a religious literacy problem in the country. i think the establishment clause has helped. i think it would be worse if it were not the case. americans' lack literacy in a great many areas, religion being one of them, so i think there's a lot we have to do on the education front. >> i just wanted to disagree. i write a syndicated column on ethics and religion. you said s
. [applause] be mac thank you. there's a little less than two months before the election and in many ways this is the time the book was designed for because this are into these last two months, this is the election really get going. and to me, one of the great untold stories is not just obama versus romney. it is obama versus karl rove and he's in behind the scenes the whole time and he has put together over $1 billion that will be spent in these last two months. read new york here are not going to see much spent in the battleground states. and he's become king of the sub two. he has cover when you put this together money with money romney has raised the republican national committee is a total of about $1.8 billion. to put that in this, in no way, mccain had 375 million to spend, so this is a fact or a five. you'll start seeing it come out now. the other thing i want to discuss about him, is susie really? what does he do? is a political operative. how does he operate? what does he do? i talked to a couple services. one said there is a dark and terrible beauty about what he does. i have a

a little more the foreign policy side. i'm surprised how much came in given that the election campaign so far is mostly about domestic issues. >> the one dish that wasn't shown on the clip was appointed pressed repeatedly that governor romney had a press conference in the middle of the crisis before he knew all the facts to condemn the way the administration handled it. and i never took it back. i thought there was a good point here dataflow. >> is something us at that press conference that they. that romney really got pressed onto melissa jumping the gun, moving too fast? ryan gave the exact same response that day, that any time there's some and going on, it's fine to question it. at the time it was damaging for romney and his sort of gotten lost in the foreign policy discussions. >> the administration's response and whether their story default and why did they react? biden reminded viewers, so did the other guys. >> we are going to go back to danville. are you there? there they are. >> thank you very much. we are at center college in danville, kentucky. behind us, a dozen officials. tal
by the standard of professional conduct that is specific to the office that the elected official holds. so it would be different for example for the tax collector and the sheriff. >> supervisor kim: let's keep the the tax collector out. if we are going to say that there're standards, which i'm not sure i agree with but if we agree it's standards relating to your specific office, specifically the sheriff's office, how do i delineate when it falls below the standards of decency? so what can guide us in the future when it's not a domestic violence? what can guide us in understanding when it falls below the standard of decency? that's what i'm trying to grapple with. >> i see. i think it is a discretionary decision. i think you can look to the case law, you can look to the norms of the city, the morass of the city. i think that it is, at bottom, a judgment call. there have been times, 50 years ago, when a sheriff committing a little arm grab truly would have been no big deal, right? the severity, the understood severity of that conduct has changed over time. and it may change again. i don't kn
pocketbooks. this isn't the presidential election we're talking about. it's something much more important: the holiday marketing blitz. holiday advertising is about to kick in, but it will be competing for attention with a record flood of political ads. darren gersh takes a look at how the two mix. >> hard for those who need a job, hard for those who have a job. >> reporter: when the nation is focused on a big issue, retailers know they have to respond when crafting a marketing message. and this year, the focus of the nation and the election is the economy. >> it affects the messages we send. to the extent the economy is such a hot button issue with the election. you know, you're going to hear us talking about savings. we're going to hear walmart talking about layaways. you're going to hear geico talking about saving 15%. >> reporter: matt williams is general manager at the martin agency, the firm that dreamed up the geico gecko. willams is advising clients not to wait for election day to launch their national ad campaigns for the holiday. but that doesn't mean holiday campaigns won't str
principal of countless ceos from general election to google. well the republicans may need a knew principal. remember these numbers? 42 million versus 24 million. those numbers are from a bloomberg study showing over the last 50 years, democrats created nearly twice as many jobs as republicans did. that is significant data. those are some cold hard facts. well today, that data got stronger. the unemployment rate dropped to 7.8%, which is the lowest since the president first took office. sure, i know. we need to do better, but the data is the data. progress is being made. the president's strategies are moving us in the right direction. that is the data, those are the facts. but republicans don't like those facts, so they are either undermining the recovery as mitt romney did today when he said this. >> romney: the reason it has come down this year is primarily due to the fact more and more people have just stopped looking for work. but if the same share of people were participating in the work force today as when the president got elected our unemployment would be around 11%
you're sworn in. the mayor argues that you're a public officer as soon as you're elected. and if you -- you know, the charter doesn't say either that it's a sworn officer or an elected officer. but if you look at all of the policy concerns, and the case law, it becomes clear that it makes no sense whatsoever to draw the line at the oath of office rather than at the election. it would be contrary to the voter's intent to enhance the ethical responsibilities of their public officials and hold them accountable to imply this two month free zone in between the election and taking the oath of office, where that elected official could do whatever he wanted with no consequences with his public position, until that moment when he walks up to the lectern and raises his hand. it also would lead to absurd results. an elected official could, for example, commit domestic violence on tuesday, and be safe from any official consequences. but if the oath of office is later that day, he couldn't do the same thing on wednesday. that's a completely arbitrary line. it makes no sense whatsoever. it's very
and mitt romney know the key to winning the election is winning the critical swing state of ohio. the president arrived there late today, and he went right after governor romney. >> i am not going to have us go back to another round of top-down economics, but that's what my opponent is offering. the centerpiece of governor romney's economic plan is a new $5 trillion tax cuts that favors the wealthiest americans, but most of the economists who have crunched the numbers said that paying for governor romney's tax plan -- one or the other. pick your poison. last week when we were on stage together. governor romney just pretended it didn't exist. what $5 trillion tax cut? i don't know anything about a $5 trillion tax cut. pay no attention for that tax cut under the carpet behind the curtain. >>> romney's pretending his tax cut plan doesn't exist, but the president won't let him get away with it. he also won't let him get away with hitting the middle class to protect his own tax rate. >> governor romney said it's fair he pays a lower tax rate than a teacher or autow
